When all of the pictures are looking unfinished and the dialog seems jumbled, I feel humbled and respectful. Humble because I can see all of my errrors. Respectful because I now have greater respect for the authors of all of the children’s books I’ve read. Nevermore will I tell myself, “It will be a cinch to do a children’s book. 32 pages, 32 images and 200 words of dialog. What could be easier?”
Here’s a screenshot of the cover. I’ll be changing the title in the next version by removing the words “to Save a Friend”. I think it’s better that the title be more suggestive. Let the reader find out why the bluejay jumped down the chimney.
